So I might as well put it out there...

Post by jessicabree on Thu Feb 10, 2011 11:22 pm

In case some of you see my post on Scrapchicks...

My company is merging with a company in Ft. Worth Texas (my parent company is buying them). I have NO news, no changes, but I have known for a while they might move some jobs to Texas and I am open to relocating if I was offered a good job. I have been trying to not think about this, since its been over a year they have been working on the merger. But as things get closer, I am starting to look into Ft Worth and trying to get a feeling for what it is like there.

Again no news. Could be a while still. Just looking Very Happy

You so rock Mara.

Like Thomas said, we know NOTHING yet. I have lots to focus on at work right now, so I will be doing that. I really want to try to go with the flow and see what happens.

You have a good outlook on this and at least you are looking. Better to be prepared.

At least you'll be staying in the South!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I have spent the last three years convincing my family to go to Atlanta. I am going to have to start all over working on Texas!

(but really, I hope you are able to stay happy with your job even if it means Texas)

Now, why couldn't this have happened when I lived there?!

Lots of nice places in Texas. Ft. Worth is much more cultural than most people think...lots of great restaurants, museums, events, etc. Keller and Grapevine are some great towns kind of in the middle of Ft. Worth and northern Dallas/Denton area, where a lot of freaks live. Easy commute from those towns no matter where you go really. Unless you need to go to downtown Dallas but who goes there anymore? I never did. lol I've lived all over so would be happy to answer any questions about certain areas.

Because Colorado is BEAUTIFUL and I was tired of the 120 degree summers.

Oh...and because Jason got a job here. Smile

Any chance they have a Colorado office? Wink

Good luck! Does this mean that to keep your current job you would have to move or is this just a possible option for you?

They are still working on the plans. So there is nothing official but they could choose to move some of the jobs to Texas, meaning my job or a similar job to mine could be in Texas and I might have to choose between taking that or leaving my company. Like I said, NOTHING really announced yet. We have known this was coming for a while. I am just looking into Texas so that if I do get that opportunity I will know more to help me decide Smile
